The Mary Jane Leland Residence. A 1951 midcentury on an oversized private promontory of 18,000sf+ in Mount Washington. This is a rare opportunity to own a special home where living, artistry, and nature have been fused into one magical setting. The longtime residence of Southern California textile artist and educator, Mary Jane Leland. Her body of work spanned various materials including woven and printed textiles and she was one of the pioneers of mid-century linoleum block-printed designs on cloth. Mary Jane would go on to found and direct the Textile and Fiber Arts program at CSU Long Beach for many years, educating hundreds of students. From 1955-1968, San Andreas was the shared home of Malcolm Leland, ceramicist and sculptor, best known as the designer of the American Cement Building facade. Built into the home's porch is a louvered wooden sculpture by Malcolm Leland, believed to be a maquette of the LA County Hall of Records ceramic exterior he created in collaboration with Richard Neutra. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is rustic and soulful, with a cozy living room featuring floor to ceiling walls of glass, cork flooring, bricked decorative fireplace and soft lighting boxes. Cheery vintage kitchen flows to a breakfast nook and office space that opens to the side porch. Dining room showcases garden views with original 'combed masonite' walls and louvered windows. Two spacious and sunny bedrooms adjacent to the yard feature clerestory windows, built-ins and corner walls of glass that magically bring the outdoors in. The home is peacefully set amidst an expansive garden with a front deck showcasing unobstructed views of the mountains and verdant hillsides. The back bricked patio leads to a large flat meandering yard with multiple fruit trees and space for your urban farming dreams, or perhaps a future spa surrounded by nature. A quiet, private and nature centered home in Mount Washington.
